Analysis / Bias
In review, the American Interest publishes high-quality in-depth news and commentary. Articles and headlines utilize minimal loaded emotional wording such as this: The Enduring Promise of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. News is properly sourced and tends to take a slight libertarian perspective such as this: COVID-19 and the Regime-Type Fallacy. Further, from an editorial perspective, they tend to cover both sides such as this: Liberals Are Just as Biased as Conservatives, Study Finds. However, they present negative views toward President Donald Trump such as this: Will the American Global Order Survive Donald Trump? Finally, they also write against socialism in support of free-market capitalism: Socialism Kills, Venezuela Edition.
